New Grad Field Trip
In September, The School of Geosciences held a new graduate student field trip to introduce 16 new graduate students to Oklahoma geology, and to each other. The trip stops included basement outcrops of Oklahoma, structures, sedimentation and hydrogeology in the Arbuckles, igneous rocks and structures in the Wichita Mountains and finally Permian red beds in western Oklahoma. Faculty members Heather Bedle, Brett Carpenter, Andy Elwood Madden, and Lynn and Mike Soreghan were along to discuss local geology at the stops, and Dr. Jon Price (an OU alum and now the chair at MSU Texas) also led the students through the Wichitas. PhD students Fola Kolawole, David Duarte, and Emilio Torres also provided insight at stops related to their dissertation work. We hope to continue the tradition on a yearly basis and are already planning the 2020 trip. If you are interested in supporting this trip, please contact us.
